Last weekend proved to be a dramatic weekend for the British Touring Car Championship at Croft.

An unfortunate multi-car collision during qualifying for round 13 on Saturday left mountune powered Team Shredded Wheat Racing with DUO driver Luke Davenport hospitalised. Luke suffered significant injuries and is currently in intensive care in an induced coma with multiple chest injuries, lung damage, broken right leg, broken pelvis, broken right arm and concussion. The whole team at mountune would like to wish him a full and speedy recovery, and our thoughts are also with drivers Aron Taylor-Smith and Jeff Smith who were injured in the accident.

The weekend took a more positive turn once racing began on Sunday and presented a podium lock-out for mountune powered drivers in the finale. Mat Jackson looked right at home as he took his first podium finish of the season, crossing the line third in Race 1, which he later backed up with an emphatic drive, taking the chequered flag in Race 3, dedicated to new team member, Luke Davenport. Jackson described the win as “a great result” after fighting off efforts from Ollie Jackson at the start of the race and later a challenge from Sutton.

Jackson's win marked the 250th for Ford Machinery in the BTCC and together with two points scored from team-mate Martin Depper, Team Shredded Wheat Racing with Duo reached the summit of the Independent Teams’ table.

Adrian Flux Subaru Racing saw a lights to flag victory for Ashley Sutton in Race 1, holding off 'King of Croft' Turkington to take the win at the North Yorkshire circuit in his mountune powered Subaru Levorg. Sutton went on to finish second in Race 2, and again in Race 3 ahead of team mate Plato, who took to the podium for the first time this season. Sutton said: “We’re having a fantastic weekend so far. We’ve bounced back from having a car that didn’t look in the best shape after qualifying yesterday to this – full credit to the team.”

Sutton is now sitting in 4th in the drivers standings, with Jackson and Plato in 9th and 15th respectively.

ST Meet

Hosted by Ford Performance and Hoonigans, the first ever ST MEETUP was held in Downtown LA with hundreds in attendance.

The weather was LA perfect and enthusiasts had their car's spotless for the Tony Harmer photo studio. The event was action packed with RC cars, video games, food trucks, custom T Shirt studio, and just people generally hanging out. Ken Block and Vaughn Gittin JR were also out signing autographs and checking out the rides.

mountune USA were invited to display our RS and the crowd pleasing 250bhp 1968 mountune powered Escort. It was a great event promoting everything awesome about the ST line and we are looking forward to the next Ford Performance ST Meetup... hopefully sooner than later.

The mountune uprated exhaust isolator helps ensure accurate alignment, particularly when attempting to DIY install the mountune cat-back exhaust, without proper access to the underside of the vehicle.

The isolator features a higher shore hardness that prevents movement of the rear resonator whilst transmitting minimal additional NVH into the cabin of the car.

Features:

  • Allows for easier DIY installation of cat-back exhaust
  • Minimises rear resonator movement
  • Uprated shore hardness
  • Minimal increase to NVH
  • Sized to fit and compliment the mountune cat-back exhaust hanger

MK3 FOCUS RS
 M380 DYNO MODE...

M380 DYNO MODE

Now available as part of all M380 upgrades and as a free update for all existing owners (via Access Port Manager), you can switch the RDU on and off from your mTune handset without having to touch, or do anything else!

With a sophisticated rear-split torque-vectoring system, the AWD system of the Focus RS can make being able to dyno your RS difficult, if not impossible. Our Dyno Mode fully disengages the interaction of the RDU (Rear Drive Unit) allowing power to be taken from the front wheels. This also means a 2WD dyno can be used if a 4WD dyno is not available.

Dyno Mode is accessed via: Calibrations > Adjustments  > Dyno Mode (On / Off)

 
MK3 FOCUS RS
 Bronze Leggera HLT

OZ Racing Leggera HLT "m-Spec" 8.5x19" wheel

The mountune Leggera HLT features an ET45 offset, and boasts an additional 0.5" in width, whilst improving the appearance and facilitating more clearance for big brake kits.

The Leggera is, as the name suggests, seriously light in weight. 9.95kg in fact, which is over 1.7kg lighter than the factory forged option wheel and 2.8kg lighter than the standard RS wheel.

Features:

  • 8.5x19", 5x108
  • ET45 Offset
  • Lightweight - only 9.95kg per wheel!
  • 2.8kg lighter than the OE wheel | 1.7kg lighter than forged OE wheel

This weekends penultimate BTCC round at Silverstone Circuit saw mountune powered Motorbase Performance take three podium wins and edge even closer to that championship title.

Race 1's frantic action on the track was nothing compared to the post-race drama, which saw the two MG drivers get disqualified for a technical infringement, resulting in mountune powered Andrew Jordan, who had crossed the line in 4th, now being handed the second place finish.

Action packed Race 2 saw Jordan on form again as he took the lead in lap eight, after starting in p2, and crossed the line with less than a 1 second lead. “It was hard work,” said Jordan. “I think I’ve done myself a bit of an injury celebrating! We needed that". Jordan's Race 1 & 2 podium finishes sees the 2013 Champion keep his aspirations for a second British Touring Car Championship drivers’ title alive, currently sitting in 6th position with 3 races left this season.

Another thrilling final Race saw Motorbase Performance's Mat Jackson start in p3 thanks to a reverse grid draw with a P2 finish in the #7 mountune powered Focus. This result also keeps Mat's championship title dreams alive, now sitting just 21 points behind the leader in the Drivers Standings.

The mountune powered Subaru's also made points this weekend with Turkington & Plato now sitting in 7th & 8th respectively. With just one event and three highly-anticipated BTCC races remaining this season, Brands Hatch is set to be the most exciting race this year, with just 37 points separating the top seven drivers and 67 still on offer at the season finale in 2 weeks time.

Another great weekend of BTCC action compliments of the Rockingham Speedway saw yet more podium finishes for the mountune powered teams, Motorbase Performance and Silversline Subaru BMR. 

After difficult qualifying conditions on Saturday, Jackson took the second place spot, with Plato and Turkington in 4th & 5th respectively for Race 1's grid line up at the famous Northampton race track. 

Race 1 saw Jackson start with a very good getaway, soon having to defend himself against the charging Subaru's.  However, Jackson, who has taken more wins than any other driver this season, was able to hold position finishing the race in 2nd place, with Plato taking the third spot. 

Race 2 saw a few collisions which included both Jackson's mountune powered Ford Focus & the #99 & #4 Subaru Levorg's, but Jordan battled to keep his position coming in 2.886 seconds after the race winner, taking 2nd place on the podium.

The final race of the day saw Colin Turkington making moves as he battled up to third before the second safety car was deployed to recover Scott's Subaru.  Turkington managed to maintain his position to take the last podium spot. 

With six races of the season still to run, we look forward to seeing the teams in action again at the penultimate round at Silverstone on 17th / 18th September.

This weekends BTCC round at Snetterton didn't disappoint with non stop action and several podium wins for the mountune powered teams. 

Race 1 of the day saw Turkington cross the line first after the Silverline Subaru BMR driver battled his way through in lap eight.  The top step podium makes Turkington the first three-time race winner of 2016, following his Race 1 wins at Croft and Oulton Park earlier this season.  Jackson, challenging his way from fifth on the grid, took a third place finish in Race 1 in the Motorbase Performance Ford Focus, claiming a podium on the team’s 300th BTCC race.

Jackson made his mark securing victory in a thrilling Race 2, twice muscling past pole man turkington off the grid, after a red flag before the end of lap one meant a restart.  The first place finish took Jackson to a total of two wins this season, with Turkington again taking a podium step in Race 2, this time in 2nd place. 

We're looking forward to seeing the guys in action again in Rounds 19,20 & 21 at Knockhill on August 13/14th.
